The police commissioner’s response came after chief secretary Asit Kumar Tripathy received a number of queries on this matter and forwarded them to Sarangi.
Earlier in the day, the chief secretary had warned that stern action will be taken against private hospitals if they refuse to admit critical patients from outside the capital city.
